The Liberal Democrats have unveiled radical new tax plans to help millions of people across the UK.
The party’s new tax plans will see tax cuts for millions of people, paid for by closing tax loopholes, making polluters pay and introducing a ‘mansion tax’ on homes worth over £2 million.
Preseli Pembrokeshire Liberal Democrat candiadte Nick Tregoning said: “These are ambitious plans which will mean that up to 4,600 people in Preseli Pembrokeshire would pay no tax at all.
“In addition to this, a further 18,170 people in Preseli Pembrokeshire will save £700 a year - giving them an extra £60 a month in their pay packets.”
Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, Kirsty Williams said “This will help more people who are feeling the pinch at the moment to get by – and boost the economy by making sure ordinary hardworking people are better off.
“It is time for a fairer and simpler tax system - and it is clear that the Liberal Democrats are the only party with the plans to do this.”
